Despite the weather, baseball season has started up again~
Drew and I went to the Mets game on Friday night, in the rain and sat in 38 degree weather soaking wet and freezing! It got so cold at one point, that I went into the bathroom and wrapped my frosty feet in paper towels before stuffing them back into my boots. We sat there in our seats shivering but not wanting to leave after our long commute into Citi Field. We held out until the end of the 7th inning and decided to head out so that we wouldn’t have to wait long for our train. No such luck. The LIRR was delayed and we stood at the station, hopping around trying to warm our feet and bodies.
Despite the miserable cold, wet weather, we had a good time, and now we have a story to remember for years to come. Plus we got to see two home runs by Lucas Duda!! It was nice to have a night with just Drew hanging out together and just “catching up.” Sure we see each other everyday, but with his busy schedule and mine we don’t have a lot of quality time. The hour -plus train ride, “forced” us to have some down time together and it was worth every minute of that soggy, cold night.
This weekend was supposed to be opening day for Drew’s baseball team and although the sun was shining, the fields were still soaked after this long, snowy winter. All games were canceled to the disappointment of Drew. Today, it is rainy and cold again and up until twenty minutes ago, games were on. Drew was all dressed, fed and ready to go! He made me take a picture of him in his new uniform and got his bag all packed up. Then, the email came in. Game canceled. Now he is moping up in his room angry and disappointed.
It is a long season. Lots of games are scheduled and I am sure there will be a point where we are hoping for a night off. Now…if we could only just get started!
